at the economy and worry that it will not get better. mitt romney is saying we do not want four more years like we have just had. president obama is saying we do not want eight years like we had under george bush, and everybody agrees with both of them. but where do you go from here? >> the analysis of what governor romney and his campaign has to do is absolutely right. his campaign has to work on the ground game. likely scenarios -- are not saying probable, but possible is for mitt romney to win the popular vote and barack obama to win the electoral college. we had that once before 12 years ago. vice president gore got about half a million votes and governor bush. but people forget that john carey had 71,000 more votes -- if john carey had gotten 71,000 more votes in ohio, he would have won the popular vote and by 3 million puritan -- 3 million. >> simply because of ohio? >> because of ohio. i think it is a possibility that governor romney will get something like 271 and lose the part of the vote. a goes to the question of whether we should have an electoral college at all. for the obama folks
. there are people who want to serve when the economy changes, could impact this? yes. but right now, i feel it is not impacting our recruiting. it does not impact our quality operationally, and hopefully that will continue. >> you have been in the job for a little over a year now. god willing and things go right, you have three more years to go. i know that much of the decade before you took this job, it was not in the middle of the night and waking up and saying, what would i do if i was the chief? you have other things on your mind. what has surprised you the most in coming into this circumstance? >> well, i think, -- i guess i've got to be careful. one of the things i tell everybody what i was the commander in iraq and the commander of the core there, have the freedom to make some pretty significant decisions. that freedom is not quite the same here in washington. that is probably one of the biggest adjustment. i had to realize i did not have complete autonomy. i knew that, but it took me a while to understand that really. the real challenges that we have are that we have this large orga
the economy added 171,000 jobs last month. the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9%. here's what president obama said about these numbers this morning in ohio. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> i want to talk about the economics and the politics of the report with our chief business correspondent ali velshi and john avalon. they're in ohio talking to the voters. ali, let's start with you since you have an economics, numbers guy here. >> yeah. >> we looked at this, and the economy stated by cnn money, they were twpg 125,000 jobs, so this number was higher at 171,000. so you have figures in august and september, also higher than we thought. what do we say about the overall growth and the health of the economy and the recovery? >> you and i talked about this before. i like the jobs creation or job loss numbers. the establishment survey more than i like the unemployment number. by the way, i feel the same way about it when it's low and when it's

is at stake. it is a critical time for the country. we face challenges, massive debt, and an economy that is not putting our people to work. young people coming out of college can't find work. china, which is going to be a major economic power. it has been taking a lot of jobs from people in ohio, with radical violent jihadists. this is a big election about big things, and i am proud we are focusing on what we'll do to bring real chance to a country that needs it. we have a president today that -- has a different view about guesus being on the right track. my view is that this is a turning point for america. and those people who want change from day one will vote for paul ryan and myself. as i go across the country, i recognize that people don't want 23 million americans out of work, looking for a good job. they don't want administrations compftablfortable with trillion dollar deficits and kids not getting jobs out of college, and they don't like the gridlock in washington. over the coming days, i will talk to people across the country about what those changes look like. this is deta
a plan to get this economy going. >> paul: and joining the panel this week, wall street journal columnist and deputy editor dan henninger, political diary editor jason riley, james freeman and washington columnist kim strassel. >> any evidence that hurricane sandy is going to affect this race? >> i think, yes, i think it might, in the sense that -- i think one of the big elements in the race is the level of enthusiasm on both sides. my strong sense, paul, this is an enthusiasm deficit on the democratic side. >> paul: all the polls show that. >> all the polls show that and i think it's a going to be a determining factor, now, new jersey, new jersey, maryland, it isn't going to decide whether-- obama will win those states. his popular vote may be down, i think the hurricane is going to suppress the popularity vote. >> paul: dampen that. >> and i spoke to a pollster not working for the obama campaign and agreed with dan's sentiment, turnout was an issue for democrats, enthusiasm is down, but also says that he thinks this allowed obama, even though he missed some days on the campaign trail, a
by the fight over the economy. it's what ultimately can tip tha scales. we have seen now an argument from the president that is about trust. and this somehow he lays it out against governor romney. >> there's no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. trust matters.s. you know, you want to know that the person who is applying to be your president and commander-in-chief is trustworthy. that he means what he says. that he's not just making stuff up. depending on whether it's convenient or not. >> how is he using that argumena to advance the cause of hey, you can't trust what you're going 0 get, that's going to ultimately lead to economic recovery under the republicans? >> i think that the president, as the race gets narrower, we focus on smaller places and smaller numbers of voters. we see that become a resonant argument. we're talking about the economy in the midwest, we're talking about the economy in ohio. on the integrity issue, the trust issue, mitt romney this th week went to defiance, ohio, an told a group of 11,000 people, jeep is about to move all of their product
has risen by more than $5 trillion. the nation's economy, it is all but stagnant. this has governor romney running l as the candidate of change. >> accomplishing change is not just something i talked about. it is something actually done, and we need to have someone in the white house who cannot just talk about it, but do it. lou: the most recent poll of ohio mirrors those tight national polls. rasmussen reports showing governor romney tied with president obama at 49%. nationally the dead heat can be seen across a white canvas of polls. the real clear politics bulbuls has the two men separated tonight by a mere tenth of a percentage point to. the rasmussen reports daily tracking poll has the race at 48%. the abc washington post tracking poll shows the governor taking a one point lead after trailing by one yesterday. those of the two most recent national polls. and while the polls are tight, they are not always accurate or indicative of the of come. either candidate could win this election by a sizable margin, if you consider a sizable margin to be two or 3 percent, perhaps, regardles
, this means jobs and the economy is an issue that is certainly front and center ended is the number-one issue, but it may not bring home as much as other issues -- ring home. host: what are the swing areas of that states that have historically provided the winner with the electoral votes? guest: by now we are seeing that the candidates are coming into -- particularly the president's campaign has been coming into the sea coast, rockingham county area, cities like rochester are certainly areas that are indicative of what may happen in this election. but the other location candidates are coming into is the city of nashua, the second- largest city in the state. we are seeing the president was there a few days ago last saturday. it seems to be a place that is being fought over. it's along the massachusetts border. massachusetts is the stated that governor romney led. so it is a very interesting area. many of the people from nashua work in massachusetts. host: who are the voters in this area? guest: new hampshire has traditionally libertarian streak. our motto is live free or die. it is a tossup lo
in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. we have to address their needs and concerns, and make sure they have jobs over the next four years. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i am afraid we will see the next norm for unemployment in this country will be 8%, and the unemployment figures are going to stay around that 20 million figure. i think
's going to be dominated by the economy. it can tip the scales. we have seen an argument from the president that is about trust. this is how he lays it out against governor romney. >> there's no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. trust matters. you know, you want to know that the person who is applying to be your president and commander and chief is trustworthy. that he means what he says. that he's not just making stuff up depending on whether it's convenient or not. >> how is he using that argument to advance that cause? you cannot trust what you are going to get to lead to economic recovery? >> i think the president is -- as the race gets narrower and narrower, we focus on smaller and smaller places and voters. it's a very resonant argument. we are talking the economy in the midwest, in ohio. on the integrity issue, the trust issue, romney went to defiance, ohio and told a group of 11,000 people jeep is about to move all of their production overseas. i read that somewhere. not at all true. it's okay to make a flub, but not to correct it. they asked are you sure he
obamacare. its stifles the economy, and it does not reform health care. it is going to take $10 billion from the economy on an annual basis it does not work, so we need to talk about the past. one is more government control. >> senator, your response. >> first, i want to thank the networks and my family, my wife of 35 years, my daughter, and my other daughter, and 60% of the grand kids are here. it is good to have james here. jobs are critically important, and i think if you take a look at what is wrong with washington, d.c. compan, there a long list of people. the jobs bill as a prime example that you brought up. it is interesting the gentleman i am running with is hyper partisan. he mentioned rosa, and she has gotten off hold of me and said he has not been much of the health on the subcommittee, and quite frankly, what needs to be done is people need to work together as americans. is when doesion thi politics trump jobs? is it when clean air or clean water is at stake or perhaps politics? >> the answer is jobs, and we need to create an environment in washington, d.c., where we are working
the economy grew at a 2% annual rate in the third quarter. that's better than expected, and up from 1.3% in the second quarter. where's the economy cooking? we asked anthony mason to show us. >> reporter: from its storefront in plainfield, new jersey, e & a restaurant supply ships out everything from stoves to plates and silverware. owner joel green says restaurants are opening again and that's been good for business. >> things definitely have picked up but it's been fairly strong all the way since april up until this point. >> reporter: green says the uncertainty surrounding the election is making business owners more cautious, but he likes the direction his business is headed. >> if it keeps rolling the way it is, i see it being strong. >> reporter: the 2% growth in the economy nationally in the third quarter was fueled in part by consumer spending, which rose 2%, and by a housing market that's showing increasing signs of life. but a 13% jump in defense spending by the government played the biggest role. without that increase, the economy's growth rate would have been only 1.4%. thi
headway on the economy. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan. you know, whether it's putting the best trained workers all over this country. bringing jobs back to this country. rather than sending them overseas or doing some nation-building at home. we're ending two wars. these are big plans and the president laid them out at the convention and it's a second term of an obama presidency will mean. it stands in sharp contrast to romney romney's. we can look at these polls a million different ways. they all say something different. at the end of the day, we're focused on getting the president across the country. meeting as many voters as possible. and invest
. donate today. >> steve: it will be the last major report card on the economy. the labor department releases monthly unemployment rate. right now it stands at 7.8 percent. economist expect it to go up to 7.9 percent. it is estimated that employers added 125,000 jobs last month and that is up from september and fall short of what is needed to cut the jobless rate. we'll bring that number to you live as it is released from washington. meanwhile new accusations. votes switched from mitt romney to obama. rnc learned of cases in nevadathey are asking the states to recalibrate all of the machines. and have additional technician on hand and use signs to make sure people check their vote. there is no evidence of problems but check your ballot, gretch. >> gretchen: 47 out of 51 times the presidential candidate who won the popular vote has won the electoral. experts believe that mitt romney will win the popular and president obama will take the electoral college and win the white house. can that happen again? what do you think about that, pete? >> i think and firmly believe that mitt romney w
looking for full-time jobs. under an employment a 40% of the economy. -- underemployment making up 40% of the economy. many people on food stamps. that is the failure, but americans are not quitters. we can turn the ship around and we will turn this ship around. we will put america on a new path to a new day with the new .resident, mitt romney [cheers and applause] you know, you have had a new energy since the first debate. you know why? for the first time, the people of this country were able to see the real mitt romney instead of instead of what the chicago henchmen were portraying him in six months of advertising. you saw a person standing there with the president of the united states who is practical who is compassionate, who is humble, who is trustworthy and you saw a president with all the air go out of him. he's not the obama that everybody thought he was. now, president obama once said in a previous campaign, and let me quote here exactly, if you don't have a record to run on, then you make big elections about small things. so is there any wonder why you're hearing from the ot
in the economy, which is this big, darker issue that the country is facing right now. it's worrying people a lot. and so, the idea that he can talk about things like the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can be really critical. host: thank you both for being with us on this news maker for this sunday. >> watch our newsmakers with rande paul again today at 6:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. now watch our coverage of the presidentia
the economy around saying the president has failed to meet the challenge fay can the united states. >> the difference between us, he makes promises and he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: president obama meantime, continuing down the path you can't trust governor romney. that he is misleading american people, imploring to give him another four years to get the economy on track. now is not the time to be changing horses. >> after four years of president you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. maybe you are frustrated about the pace of change but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth and you know i'll fight for you your families every single day. >> reporter: part of what the president said feeds into the narrative that governor romney is creating here. that he is a nice guy and means well but he doesn't put a take to get things done. something that happened yesterday, in springfield, ohio when president obama said thiskr romney
post." what are the top issues for colorado voters? guest: just like everywhere else, the economy and jobs. we have a large energy sector. education is a big issue. among the latino population and especially democrats, immigration reform. host: the demographics of the voters in colorado? guest: 52% women, 40% men. we have increased the number of people were voting by mail. 800,000 people have already cast ballots in this state. it is equally divided. one-third of the electorate is a registered republican, won third democrat, one-third unaffiliated. everyone is plan for the group of unaffiliated voters. you'll hear a lot about appealing to women and latinos. we have heard a lot about the bennett strategy and that is the strategy center michael bennett used in running against the tide in 2010. where by appealing to women and latinos he was able to pull a victory in a year or not favorable to democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic areas of the state? guest: denver is ground zero for democrats. boulder would be another. they have large registration bases in arapahoe m
. this is a critical time. the president was a president who took office with the economy as the number one challenge and he has high are unemployment today than when he took office. think of that. the president of the united states presides over a nation under his leadership where unemployment is higher than the day he took office. he said he would save social security and medicare because they were headed to insolvency. instead, he made no effort to save either and he took $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. and he said he was going do lower the cost of your health insurance by $2,500 a family by now. instead it has gone up by $3,000 a family. gasoline prices are also up by $2,000 a family. of course, he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues america faces. the last time the president met with either the republican leader of the house or the republican leader of the senate to talk about jobs or the economy offer the deficit was in july. this is a budget who -- president who has promise add lot of things whose record is different. rather than building the bridg
it has the best economy by far. according to real clear politics poll average president obama is currently leading by two points. with political ads running across the state 24/7 how will iowa shake out on tuesday? guys i think iowa is a weird state. we can all agree. >> no, no. i have friends in iowa. >> i liken to it the new hampshire of the midwest. there's a real strong independent streak there and it's hard to pin down their political leanings. i know you'll get into that in a little bit. but i just wanted to bring up a blog post that jeffrey anderson had at the weekly standard. he was talking about turnout. in 2008 democrats had a one. -poi -- one-point advantage. in the point of this post was i have to think that will tighten. if there's good news for iowa for mitt romney, it's that turnout probably won't be as great for democrats as it was in 2008. and i think that, you know, the tiny margin in '08 that 1% at one point has republicans thinking that iowa is gettable and it's why you've seen them sort of run into the state with an increased ground game. >> i was in iowa
economies. it took a long time for the -- it takes cities to drive the national economies. it took a long time for us remember that. we are joined by an adjunct professor at wayne state. most importantly, he works for city governments. gordon feller, michael littlejohn and you have heard from carla. it is very hard to moderate. all i want to do is tweet. i wanted to start with a question that really build off presentation. this can be a very broad conversation. we are talking about efficiency and how we manage congestion and lower energies. we are talking about the integration of data. we are talking about participation was social media, co-production of solution. david mentioned this. the united states is not quite at the vanguard of this. when i think it can just in, i think about singapore. he brought the copenhagen. i want to start with the ibm and cisco part of the world appeared word you see progress within cities? where is the u.s. -- part of the world. where do you see progress within cities? where in the u.s.? >> we can point to smarter transportation and public safety and health
hampshire's economy is humming along and unemployment is at less than 6%, so when president obama and mitt romney visit the battleground state, their stump speeches tend to include promises of more job creation. our david mattingly visited two small businesses there to see what their executives think about the candidates' proposals. >> reporter: randi, victor, the unemployment rate in this critical battleground state is under 6% and well under the national average, so when it comes to campaign promises about creating jobs, businesses here say leave that to the professionals. two new hampshire small businesses that found a way to beat the recession. one is a free-wheeling tech company. producing codes that makes e-mail and the internet work better. the other has been in business for five generations. >> high carbon steel photograph needles. >> reporter: manufacturing metal pins for everything from antique phonographs to the military. >> these are ping that go into the ammunition boxes for the u.s. government. >> reporter: in tough times they both found ways to create new jobs. what every ca
is to get the government -- the overt regulation is crushing our economy. those are the facts. we have to have clean air, clean water. at the same time, when you have the federal government telling the american farmer that your 17-year-old daughter cannot drive a tractor, who will take better care of the farm kid? mom and dad or big government? the key thing is to have both parties coming together sharing ideas. not one party telling us what we cannot do. let's look at everything and do it in a responsible way for our economy, for our environment and also to make sure that people are safe on their jobs. >> we need to get away from our reliance on foreign energy. we are taking some good steps in that direction. we have some great examples right here in peoria. with the ag lab. they are researching something that has great potential. as higher oil content than soy beans. it can be planted in the off- season. and has great potential to be used as an alternative biofuel. within the 17th congressional district, we have examples of solar farms. we have examples of wind farms. and did a favor
better if we intend to compete in the global economy. last year, i traveled to china, and i visited several universities. the gnarl investment -- national investment in these universities, research facilities, and higher education is something to behold. over the last 30 years, china has had a 58-fold increase in spending in education, health, and social investments. according to o report from the center for american progress, by 2030, china will have more than 200 million college graduates, more than the entire u.s. work force. in five years, india will be producing five times as many college graduates as the united states. these are the facts that drive the decisions we must make as we position penn state to succeed in the future. part of that strategic planning requires getting out and staying out in front of the information technology revolution, which has been among the most significant drivers of educational change in the last 15-20 years. it's also been like a run away train. one response to the higher education funding crisis has been increased appeals, especially from legis
>> what did you learn? >> the economy is improving. i learned parade has 88 million subscribers and i listened to eric smith on the way in. >> thanks to you all and for the morning joe team great work this week as every week. you guys ar maizing. thank you so much. all right. it's way too early. mark halperin, what time is it? >> stay tuned for "chuck today and the daily rundown." >>> a better than expected jobs report just days before the country decides who will be the next president. 171,000 jobs added in the month of october and revised reports add another 84,000. the initial reaction is positive. does it move any votes? 88 hours in ohio. that is what the next few days will feel like. president obama and governor romney are in the buckeye state as if the whole race may depend on it. guess what? it probably does. we'll go live to the site of the president's event this morning near columbus. there are more than just two guys running for office. house republicans could actually pick up a few seats on tuesday. we'll talk to the gop's man in charge of holding on to the house and
